I like animals, but don't like seeing animals locked up. While the animals are not in small cages they are still enclosed in areas that aren't big enoug for them to run around in they also have roads and cars driving past them all day. It was about 37°c when we visited and that is very unnatural temperature for a number of the animals who definitely looked uncomfortable in the heat.

A small scam (but still scam no matter of the size) at the entrance. They charged us for the useless "radio guide" as they took our admission money. Then after we realised they had charged us for this and said we don't need it, they said they can't refund us as we already paid for it. Also, I was a little concerned about the animals. The whole point of a safari is that the animals roam free instead of in enclosures like a zoo. Kind of defeats the point when it contains a zoo as well.

I'm not an animal lover. Actually I don't like them. But, this park amazed me by their great attractions. Lions, tigers, and many others are just 30cm away. How can't you be amazed. Other attractions allow you to feed animals including lions and tigers. You can experience the difference of the style of the lions and tigers eat flesh... Thanks God, its not my flesh 😅 I thought it was a bit expensive at the entrance, but pretty much satisfied at the end.

Gunma Safari Park is one of two safari parks in Japan. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm glad I went. You can visit the areas with your own car or by boarding their buses. My friend and I opted to use our car. It was quite amazing being able to drive through and see all the animals surrounding us. To be able to see the animals up close was quite interesting. I couldn't believe that a lion was only a few feet away, let alone a whole pack. We stopped by the walking zoo area and were able to interact with some of the other animals, including feeding the goats. Overall the experience was fantastic and I'd recommend it to people looking for a good day out. If you live in the area, you can even get an annual pass at an affordable cost.

It was easy to find and we travelled in our own car It was about 2000 yen per person, 500 yen for the electronic Tablet and about 500 yen for the car There were many animals to see but I think the place needed a bit of maintenance here and there The Staff were very good and when you entered the secure areas where the Lions were etc there was a staff car present which was good Its definitely worth while visiting
